Some things in life are just meant to be. That is the way I felt when I adopted my son in 2012. I always knew I wanted to adopt even from a very young age. A family friend was adopting & it touched me so deeply that I knew it was something I was supposed to do. Always wanting to be a mom, I did think that I would try to have one biologically too. I then became a counselor for children from all different backgrounds. Knowing how difficult it was to adopt, I started the process at age 30. I was by far the youngest person looking to adopt. Often people adopt as an alternative option. For me that was not the case. Adoption to me was the only option that made sense, and it truly was the best move I have ever made in my life❤️!!!
I live on the property I grew up on & never left! I re-built my home from scratch when I was 26 & made an apt for mom. I couldn’t be any luckier with the relationship we formed through his school & sports related activities. I am fortunate to have a very close family that is very involved. I have the same amazing friends since I was in grammar school that we consider the “family we chose”.Now my son’s friends parents are my new besties & we do everything together, which makes it fun for all. I live 5 min from my job so I am able to volunteer often for events at my son’s school. Life is good:)!
Overall I feel very accomplished & fulfilled in my life! I have a beautiful son, both inside& out. He has enhanced my world as well as my family’s, in ways that I did not believe were possible. I have a very close family & group of friends since elementary school! We do everything together. My house is usually where people migrate to and it’s always filled with lots of kids, & parties! am a counselor at a high school for the last 18 years. Love my job!Home by 2:45, get my son off the bus at 3:45 & then my day really begins. Weekends are always fun consisting of playdates, & spending time with family & friends.Sun is always a fam funday where the theme revolves around food! We usually spend vacations at the beach in summer & on the slopes in the winter. We live everyday to the fullest! At this point in my life I am so excited to again share this love & opportunity with another baby!
